GREENWICH, Conn. -- The Friends Friday Film Series, now 68 years old, is a staple of the Greenwich Library. For the 2015-16 season the series will once again roll out a slate of award-winning new releases, classics and international films with wide-ranging appeal.
From award-winners like "Boyhood" and "Still Alice" to Hollywood classics like "The Pajama Game" and "Three Godfathers," to "Good Hair," the Chris Rock documentary selected as one of the Greenwich Reads Together programs centering around the book "Americanah," there will be films to interest every point of view.
The season kicks off on Friday, Sept. 11, with "The One Hundred Foot Journey" and will run through June 24 with "Letter from an Unknown Woman."
